Within the UNDP-GEF project “Establishing the Transparency Framework for the Republic of Serbia”, implemented by the Ministry of Environmental Protection with the technical support of the UNDP and financial support of GEF, a first study on harnessing the natural resources as a response to climate change challenges in Serbia was prepared.
The Study on Nature Based Climate Solution in Serbia – harnessing nature’s potentials in response to climate change challenge, is based on a comprehensive analysis conducted with the aim to establish and assess different nature based solutions (NBS), their connection with the climate change, as well as their applicability and importance for the Republic of Serbia. This Study should contribute to the preparation of reports which Serbia is obliged to submit to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and to the European Union (EU), as well as to the general effect of raising awareness on climate change and to the efforts of the Government of Serbia in the fight against the climate change. The application of NBS could contribute to solving the many societal challenges. These solutions, if implanted on strategical and justified way, could represent a low-risked, low-budgeted and undemanding solutions for various natural catastrophes and effects caused by the climate change.
